Material: Ceramics | Location: Cambridgeshire
My work is about simplicity of design and shape, bringing these in relationship to the surface. I am inspired by the elemental colour and shape of ancient Korean pottery. What I love about ceramic is that it starts as a soft lump and can become pretty much anything you want it to be. After the firing it is hard and durable and can survive centuries. But at the same time it’s fragile and can be broken into pieces in a moment.
Each piece is individually made from porcelain on the potter’s wheel. Naïve, spontaneous pencil strokes, drawing graphic simple patterns, create movement and direction. The imperfection of the patterns make it lively, rough and immediate and unique, still holding an order or direction to bind them together.
